Cranioorbital morphology caused by coronal ring suture synostosis

Published inPlastic and Reconstructive Surgery, vol. 144, no. 6, p. 1403-1411
Publication date2019

Minor cranial sutural synostosis is currently regarded as a rare diagnosis. As clinical awareness grows, a greater number of cases are being documented. This study aims to describe the variants of unicoronal synostosis with regard to major and minor sutural involvement and secondary effects on cranial and orbital morphology. The information is aimed to improve clinical diagnosis and management.
